 “I am very excited to be opening a store in Livingston,” said Lubetkin. “We have a great location and are in a great market.”

“We certainly appreciate Cabinets Direct investing in our community,” said Fernandez. “This is one of a number of locations and with their custom service and selection I know they will be very successful here.”

“I wish Livingston High School sweethearts, David, Class of 1978 and his wife Kathy, Class of 1980 the best of luck in their new endeavor,” said Anthony.

 “Opening up Cabinets Direct here where Channel Lumber used to be is like rolling back time,” said Slater, who once owned Channel.

I am proud that someone who lives in Livingston is opening a business here that will bring people into town from all over,” said Slater.

“I love when new businesses, especially niche ones that are addressing a particular need for the community open here,” said Guida.

“This is a great business for Livingston,” said Beth Lippman. “It is definitely a niche needed in this area and opening it here by Fortunoff’s and Blinds-to-Go creates a home decorating center over here.”
